There’s no denying that Carson Wentz has struggled this season, evidenced by a QBR of 51.0 which ranks 25th in the league.
And what should have been a good matchup for Wentz and the Eagles on Thursday night against the Giants just got tougher with injuries to key skill-position players for Philadelphia.
According to reports, leading rusher Miles Sanders and star tight end Zach Ertz will miss Thursday’s game, leaving the Eagles very short-handed on the offensive side of the ball.
Sanders will not play Thursday due to a knee injury, but could return in Week 8. Ertz’s status is a bit more serious, as an injury to his ankle is expected to keep him off the field for three to four weeks.
The betting market has certainly taken notice, with Philly dropping from -6 to -4 at Parx (click here for live NFL odds) after news of those two injuries broke on Monday afternoon.
The Giants vs. Eagles over/under has also seen some movement, dropping from the opener of 45.5 to 44 at the time of writing.
Interestingly, 74% of early NFL Week 7 bets have come in on Philadelphia, yet 89% of real money wagered is on underdog New York.
